    Hi,
    I'm buying a 32" LCD TV. Please help me decide between Hitachi 32ld7200 and Sony KLV-V32A10E.

    Both have similar spec. and similar price. Which is better. Is there anyone that has tested both?

    Thank you for your help!

    personnally i went with the Hitachi over the new Sony Bravia.

    The reasons being:
    It was cheaper
    It has more inputs
    the picture was better - i have to admit that i could never get anyone to setup the sony with an hdtv source. That said the hitachi seemed better when looking at freeview.

    did you have the chance to compare them side by side?

    What was the picture quality difference?

    What about contrast ratio, specifications for Sony are almost 2x better...

    Connection wise, Hitachi's better
    Sound wise, Hitachi's better
    Price wise, Hitachi's better
    PQ wise, Sony is better

    Biggest problem with the Hitachi is the buzz... It's a hit or miss thing, and if you've got one, chances are slim they'll replace it.

    This made me turn to the Sony side (plus the fact I can get the Sony at the same price but with a 5 year guarantee)

    Hitachi by far had the same choice and had a comprehensive view of both before purchase ( mate works in Sony Centre )

    Hitachi has better:

    Picture Quality

    Sound

    Imputs - HDMI - DVI - COMPONENT - 3 X SCART ( 2 RGB ) - VGA - S-VIDEO

    Looks and it has a motorised stand!, but hey dont just belive me just read some of the Home Cinema Reviews.

    And no sign of this apparent buzz nonsense...

    I reviewed it them myself - im in no way saying the Sony is not a good model it's one of the best.

    However the Hitachi LD7200 is a rare bolt of lighting giving performance of twice it's price tag.

    I spent 3 months deciding and looked at Lowe - Sony - Panasonic all great and nearly bought, but I was lucky enough to get Richersounds to give me a full demo of the Hitachi that blow away all the rest.

    The Sony and Panny were my second choices, and I had a good 2 hours with the Sony running RGB and HD signal from a PC and it too was good just not as good as the Hitachi!!

    Good luck with your buy I know its a killer, no doubt any you but you will love!

    Hi,
    ricki1980 thank you for your insight! Which Sony did you compare to ld7200 ? Was it the "new" one - V32 (KLV-V32A10E or DL-V32A12)?
